ticket. he seems to be enjoying working behind the scenes. how do republicans see ryan's role right now? >> i think it's wrong to say that paul ryan is below the radar. inside of washington he is very, very much on the scene. it's the ryan budget which they passed, he is a major player inside the republican caucus but i think what he is doing is very smart, he is keeping -- he is trying to keep a low pro file in terms of 2016, unlike marco rubio and rand pall and i think that's for a couple of reasons, because his ideas are still poison for the party, and two, he wasn't such a hot shot in the 2012 campaign. he had neither steak nor sizzle didn't really set the world on fire, so i think he is playing it actually smart, but boy, he is still a power here.
